Barbados see + do
“East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet”: Barbados might well have inspired Rudyard Kipling to pen that famed verse. The island's coasts are so dramatically contrasting (in atmosphere, geography) that visiting both sides will make you feel like you've enjoyed two distinctly separate holidays. If the west attracts tourists with its crystalline, lake-like waters and blue-chip restaurants, the east will seduce with its romantic, ragged coastline and sumptuous quiet. Although doing nothing is a most respectable activity in Barbados, there are plenty of options for those looking for a holiday from their holiday. Activities range from the cultural (visiting churches, opera-going) to the debauched (rum-imbibing) to the natural (beach-hopping) to the posh (polo playing).
